Gift for Father

Happy father’s day to all the hard working dads out there. Fathers play a very vital role in the family. We all know that they are the providers for the family but aside from that role, they are also the chosen leaders of the household. It is important that they lead the family so that there is unity and order in the family. They need to take that God given responsibility seriously and assert their leadership. They need to lead in the spiritual area and even the direction that the family is taking.

Truly, these roles are not easy. So at least once a year, it is good to be able to show the fathers how much we appreciate them. One of the ways to show our appreciation is by taking them out for a treat. Be it a digital gift, a hearty meal, a trip to the movie house, a day off from usual chores, sponsor the car or rv repair, do something special for them like wash the car or give them some time to pamper themselves. I believe that father would appreciate simple thoughts like these ones rather than those expensive gifts.

Learning Styles

Within one family, there may be a variety of learning styles present. I believe that if you want to teach your children effectively, it would be good to know them individually and accept their different learning styles. Learning styles are the different ways one could learn. The three learning styles are:

1. Visual Learner – Learners should see in order to learn. Visual learning can be done through looking at photos or reading words. They learn best with visual display, illustrations or videos. During a lecture, the visual learner, often would take notes to absorb the information.

2. Auditory Learner – Learners learn best through discussions, talking things through and they notice the tone of voice, the pitch and even the speed. These learners often would enjoy reading text aloud.

3. Kinesthetic Learner – Learners need to experience in order to learn the concept. They need the hands-on and more physical approach to learning. They might find it hard to sit still for long periods of time as they need to move around.

Hearing Loss Symptoms

Here are some symptoms of hearing loss:

> muffled hearing.

> difficulty understanding what people are saying.

>listening to television or radio louder than the usual volume.

>ringing or buzzing in the ears.

>ear pain or irritation.

>fluid in the ears.


People who have hearing loss sometimes do not know that they are already on the stage of becoming hearing impaired, so it is important to take hearing loss self tests and go and have the ears checked by specialists. They have different tools which can be used like anĀ audiometer to determine the severity of the problem. It is better to take action early on before it is too late.
